Re: gas welding vs mig

I have one of those torches at work, and I've played with it a bit. It claims to cut like plasma and weld like TIG. I was not impressed; I didn't find it any different.

Gas welding body panels together might be a better way to go than MIG, because the weld is annealed in the process, which should make hammering the weld out easier.

But you also run the risk of putting too much heat into the panel and having to deal with that.

Search up gas welding bodywork videos on Youtube and see if it's your cup of tea.

I'm not very good at it, honestly. I usually MIG.
